Here is what Leslie Schiller has written to our classmates regarding the 55th Reunion: 

August 16, 2018 


Dearest Classmates,


We know that so many of you have been kind enough to respond already but just in case you have not, circumstances change or you just need a refresher on all that is to come in just a little less than 2 months from now, we wanted you to have the details! This is going to be a special gathering, we promise!


The countdown begins! It’s time to remind you that our special 55th Reunion Weekend is fast approaching, arrangements are in place and all we need is your delightful presence to make the weekend perfect!

We all have matured in so many ways since graduation, have gained great wisdom through each of our life experiences and have so very much to share with each other!


Our Friday night event, Oct 5th, 2018, will be held at Clark Botanical Gardens, 193 I.U. Willets Road, Albertson, in their Library at the Main House. You may arrive early (5-6pm) to take advantage of strolling through the beautiful gardens before our evening event begins, 6pm to 10pm. The cost for this event is $20 per person.


Our Saturday night event, Oct 6th, 2018, will be held at “Antonette’s”, 290 Glen Cove Road, Roslyn Heights, NY 11577, from 6:45pm to 11:00pm. Dress code is ‘Casual Elegance’, sport jacket and slacks for the men with appropriate attire for the women. The cost for this event is $75.00. *& **. (see below for */**)


Our last event of the weekend will be held  Sunday, Oct 7th, 2018, 12noon, when we will be hosted for brunch by Marcia Friedman Mayer, (Thank you Marcia!) once again at her beautiful home in Laurel Hollow (driving directions will be sent to you closer to reunion weekend). The cost for this event will be only $10.00 per person to help cover cost of beverages and incidentals since Marcia has warmly offered to provide lunch, welcoming us to her home in her always gracious way.


To re-cap costs: Friday evening $20.00pp/

Saturday night $75.00 per person *  &  **

and Sunday Brunch $10.00 per person. 


* Please remember to advise us of any dietary restrictions (i.e. Vegetarian, Gluten Free) that you may require, when sending in your payment (see below).    

 ** Non-refundable after Sept 4th, 2018.


Please respond to this email by replying to me at as to whether you are able to be with us or not. (again, either way if you have not already, so that we know!) 

If you are able to join us, please make your check payable to:  Wheatley 1963 Reunion Fund, ASAP and mail it to Donna Kenton, 245 E.24th St., #2B, NY, NY 10010.


We are so very excited about the possibility of seeing you in a little less than two months from now! If you would like to join us but find you need some help with finances for the events, please contact me at above email, as we are in the process of finding a way to help you, that we promise will be held in the strictest of confidences.


Saturday daytime activities are still in the planning stage but we are hoping to do another visit to each school; Wheatley, Willets Road, & North Side. Once arrangements are completed & confirmed, we will let you know!


The lists here on the website may spark your interest and spur you to attend, even for just one event if that is all you can commit to. Detectives wanted: Please do check this list of missing classmates: Renee Brody; Cliff Camiel; Claire Carmody; Anthony (Tony) Carone; Reginald (Reggie) Groeneveld; Wendy Miller; Keith Ranier; & Joyce Stone (Varonia), and maybe you might be able to give us some help in finding them! 


Hoping to see you soon!


 Our warmest wishes always,

 Leslie, Mary Lee, Marianne, Donna, Maida, Kathy, Louise, Keith & Marcia
